Do you ever wake up with the frustrated, disjointed sensation that your emotional forces are scattered all over some inner landscape?
I certainly do. This very morning was a case in point.
As I always do, I journaled to get to the bottom of the question. Essentially, by going online on my laptop last night, in my bed, which is supposed to be my sanctuary, I unwittingly opened a channel to a lot of sludge. Yes, the internet is a wonderful tool. It is also an energetic sewer, in many ways, and when I’m tired, I’m vulnerable. It’s the same with certain TV programs, especially those that focus on crime and general depravity. So here’s my insight, for what it may be worth to you.
We live in an ocean of energy, and just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Can you see magnetism? Gravity? Electricity? But they are THERE, aren’t they? Too often, we’re like jellyfish, floating in the energetic sea (read: collective unconscious), skinless, unprotected from any passing predator. It seems prudent to consciously don a skin, flexible, but strong as steel. How? By envisioning that. See yourself surrounded by a golden bubble, especially when you are going to be around a lot of people. (Remember yesterday’s blog about garbage stew? Well, other people’s garbage bays often spring leaks. They can pollute your whole day, if not your lifetime.)
This is, at the bottom line, a boundary issue. You have a choice about the energies you allow in. Make it consciously–don’t just drift.
I’m not asking you to believe it works. I’m asking you to try it.
